If you still have some energy left after an action-packed day in the water, you can join one of our Activity guides for an evening activity. We have some exciting activities on offer, please refer to the Activities board to see what is scheduled each day.
Discover LEI by night; look for and learn about some of the nocturnal animals such as ghost crabs, land hermit crabs, frogs and nesting or roosting sea birds. Star gazing is beautiful at Lady Elliot and this tour finishes off on the airstrip where our guide will delight you with fascinating information about the stars and constellations you can see. If you are lucky, you might even be able to spot some galaxies and nebula as well!
Come along to the Lagoon Bar as we put you to the test and see how much you have learnt during your stay on Lady Elliot Island. An entertaining evening for all ages with the games on offer rotating throughout the week.
Learn more about the Great Barrier Reef and Lady Elliot Island during our evening presentations in the Reef Education Centre. The presentations on offer rotate throughout the week. Some presentations include Marine Pollution Presentation, Great Eight Presentation, Turtle Talk, Shark Talk, Manta Ray Talk and Whale Talk.
Enjoy our spectacular evening sky as you lie on the airstrip and gaze up to the heavens. Bring along your favourite nightcap and pillow.
(duration 1 hr)
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most important sea turtle habitats in the world and, every year from November to February, green and loggerhead turtles return to Lady Elliot Island to start a new life cycle. When the sun goes down, they clamber up the beach around the Resort to dig deep pits where they lay between 80 and 180 eggs. Our guides will help you find the best vantage point without disturbing the turtles while they lay their eggs or watch the tiny hatchlings as they make their way to the water. At the end of the nesting season from February to April, we watch again as hundreds of baby turtles make their way to the water.
